    Good racing tonight once again, the replays are very entertaining, thanks for gifting Antt.
    Second race I cracked under pressure near the end from jim who hounded me lap after lap, it was always going to happen, Very Happy
    Nice drive jim.

    Great fun again tonight, thanks everyone!

    It was close between us in that 2nd race Soul! I tried an ambitious overtaking maneuver at one point and totally messed it up and just missed taking you and Eighteen 0 five out. It went differently in my head. haha Very Happy

    Looking forward to next week already. I haven't raced Catalunya much, so I had better get practising!

    Sorry it's a little "ranty", but it addresses this exactly.

    Not 'Ranty' at all. 3 cars wide going into that 2nd corner was always going to be a bit iffy!

    good fun yet a gain this week , first race sucked for me .
    Got a good start off the line and got up into 2nd place and then out braked myself at the second corner and went head on into the wall , front aero wrecked , got back on track and got tagged by someone , apologies to who that was as i think i must of come across the front of your car coming back on track.So pitted on the end of the fist lap but aero was goosed which resulted in running 3-4 seconds a lap slower.In total i pitted 3 times but kept going to get the points ! Hope i kept out of everyones way when being lapped ,i tried to let you all pass at the safest points on track.

    Race 2 was a different story , good start and showed the true potential of the car , fastest lap set (although dirty)first win of the series and remain 3rd in the championship....................roll on Catalunya, running low 1.20s there at the moment on the same set up so may be able to get into the 1.19s ?
    Maybe do some mid week runs again if anyone wants to join in
    Cheers
    Sim cheers

    ps:

    good comments Ant nd not a rAnt................seriously though we all need to keep within these rules so that we all enjoy racing together and maintain the club standards not only for us but new members joining.

    We race every Friday at 9PM. You can find all the details in the official thread Smile

    I'll get the livery sent to you later - Message & Friend Request me on XBL so I don't forget please, also so I can gift it to you. Smile

    Oh and Jim, I watched that Live on Sky F1, simply couldn't believe it. Sorry, but as much of a Lotus fan I am - Grosjean did not need to come that far across, he had so much room on his left side. He's still a GP2 driver, needs to just be a little more careful - The cars are much bigger, and much more powerful. You'd think after being in F1 twice now, he'd have realised that.

    But, that's for another discussion Razz

    Are you by any chance on the GP circuit rather than the national? Looked on the leaderboards and you don't appear to have popped a time in yet.

    People who've set a time in hot lap mode have all gone quicker than 1:22, so it's easily achievable. So far, you guys are all separated by about 3 seconds.

    It's going to be close this Friday, I can tell!

    Well I have to say I'm pretty happy with my GP circuit laptime anyway seeing as I haven't got a tune yet. Now to try the National circuit...

    Great racing today everyone, really enjoyed my first round with you guys. Might grab the replays later and take a few snapshots that I thought epitomised the style of racing today...

    Looking forwards to Silverstone next week :-)

    First off, sorry for ruining people's first race. It's totally out of character for me to be driving in such a way, and I'll do as best I can to make sure it will not let it happen again.

    But, on a much lighter note - Tonight was great overall. Well done to everybody, I had loads of fun! Some amazing battles at the front, midfield and the back of the grid. It truly is a pleasure to race with all of you, and I hope we can continue this strong form in the races to come!

    Good luck to you all for Silverstone, I had better get tuning and practicing!

    I've updated the results, so go ahead and check them out. It's all very, very close at the top now! Very Happy

    First race I think I may have bumped Rugard on 1st corner, sorry dude, I made up for it by moving slower than a slug for the rest of the race.

    Turned off assisted braking for race and ta-da finally I dont finish 3 minutes behind everyone else. Woo.

    That was a great 2nd race I missed! I've only quickly scanned it from the first 4 places but looks great!

    Looks like I should of cruised around for those 7 points now! I'm not here for next weeks race either so remember to save those replays!

    2 great races today, especially the 2nd race. Me, Soul and Blue had an epic battle for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Could have gone to any one of us! Excellent fun, thanks everyone.

    Don't worry about it mate, these things happen.

    I had lots of fun again this evening, thanks again everyone! Two great races :-)

    SimF40, I'm really sorry if I caused confusion when you tried to lap me on the first race - I tried to stick to the outside for turn 1 and suggested you pass me on the inside over mic, but I guess in hindsight my communication and intentions weren't clear... Apologies for that.

    DynaMike, great racing those last few laps on race 2 - sorry if my initial overtaking manouvre was overly aggresive.

    Too bad I'll be missing the next two sessions at Silverstone and Infineon, but I'm away with work. I'll see you all in a few weeks time. Have fun! Smile

    Yeah, if the 2nd race would have been "real" live on TV it could become a classic. I thought I would have been overtaken by one after another with my slightly damaged engine and my 100% wrecked gearbox. I am astonished I could keep my position.
    I'll try to cut some scenes together to a video at the weekend. From what I saw in the replays there were many manoeuvres, overtakings and what not ever.

    great racing again last night guys!
    thought it was all going to go pear shaped on the first corner in the first race but i mansged to get away with only minor damage and was kept under pressure from EighteeN O FivE through the whole race....................need to have a look under jims bonnet............that car is quick!
    second race got aero damage at the beginning , a blue Leon was lagging really badly and was all over the place, but kept going to get the points to maintain 3rd in the championships and reel in the 2 guys ahead of me.
    all in all a good points haul and look forward to Silverstone...............not a track i like !
    Cheers

    Thanks for the replays Bluesky;
    This is getting out of hand! 25 laps to race and again peoples race are ruined on the first corner!
    I've watched Jo crashing on the first corner on both races,on the first race trying to avoid a collision between 2 other drivers in front of him, but on the sprint race someone just slammed into the side of the car... We (Jo and myself) are not the fasted drivers but at least give us a chance to race.
    Everyone want to race and have fun,but not like that...
    Maybe we could think about rolling start or something, or penalties, that should be given on the next race.
    By now everybody knows who's fast and who's not so fast. If someone's behind me who's a lot faster, I won't stand in his way, just no use doing that. If we show a little more respect for each other it could be so much more fun.

    Greetzz Luc






    PS; What was that blue car doing, weaving al over the place, blocking everyone?

    The blue car or better his driver seemed to have had ionternet connection lag issues. You sometimes can see cars zipping and hopping in public lobbies, so that time the lag was "only slightly" but extremly annoying for some people.

    I agree that the start in race 1 was horrible again. But in my eyes a rolling start won't prevent anything as long as everyone thinks he can preliminate the race in the 1st corner. It seems that some guys still haven't noticed that in the first lap in sim mode the tyres are cold and the brakes too.

    I am sorry to say that but the only way to keep things clean is to impose penalties in my eyes. And I am sure nobody wants that it goes this way. So please try to be a little more calm and regardly. There are 25 laps left to gain positions.

    4 of my 6 races were ruined by others either in the first corners or by trying to overtake where you can't overtake like trying to push an elephant through a mousehole. So I can understand you but I still hope that everyone is mature enough to see his own mistakes and to try to be a little bit more regardful, calm and patient.
